In Outlook Express, when I receive e-mails with Internet links in the message body, I have difficulty when I click on the link to access the site. One click won't do it, I need to click repeatedly until the browser comes up and directs to the site.

Is there anything I can do to permit one-click linking?

Thanks.

Make sure Outlook Express is the default email on the Programs tab in Internet Options and IE is the default browser.
Register these dll's.
Start> Run> type: regsvr32 urlmon.dll then hit OK.
You should receive a message that the dll was successfully registered.
Do the same for each of the following.
regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 mshtml.dll
regsvr32 browseui.dll
If that doesn't help, check these settings.
Hyperlinks in messages stop working

I followed your protocol, with only one problem. When I typed in regsvr32 mshtml.dll and hit ok, I got a response "mshtml.dll was found, but DllRegisterServer entry point was not found. This file cannot be registered." Any thoughts?

Try re-registering these dll's. See if it doesnt cure problem.
The first one ,actxprxy may be culprit. Worth a try . >f


Actxprxy.dll
Oleaut32.dll
Shell32.dll

Do the same for the other two.
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 shell32.dll

Unfortunately, that did not do the trick, and now I have two additional problems.

First, when I open my IE7 browser, instead of going to my home page, I get a blue screen at this URL: http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2.aspx. Supposedly, it is to customize my settings, but it offers no customization options, only a blue screen.

Second, frequently when I exit out of my IE7 browser, it goes white and asks if I want to report a problem to Microsoft. What gives?

The 7 .dlls that you re-registered have nothing to do with your current problem.
The ones that Augie 65 and I suggested usually work for that OE problem-- I have done on several times on different machines with 100 % success. The ones Augie suggested are usaully the problem.
That brings me to think this is not a OE problem at all --more likely IE-7.
If it were me --- I would retreat to IE-6 and see how things work, try to isolate the culprit.
Possibly reinstall 7 after sorting things out ?.
Might not be a bad idea to download Firefox --just in case
I have no experience with IE-7 so I will keep mouth shut.
Hope someone has a better idea of easy fix. My best >f
